to go until the elections, we're taking an in-depth look this morning at the effect latinos could have on election dame you know that saying there's power in numbers? well, latinos have exactly that. according to the latest census, there are more than 50 million latinos in the u.s., and of those, more than 12.2 million are expected to show up at the polls on election day. that is just over half of latinos who are eligible to vote. joining me now, as they do every week at this time, cnn contributor maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "the real ne" on the blaze. good morning to both of you. maria, how critical is the latino vote in swing states like florida, for example? >> it's very critical, randi, and especially in this close election. we saw already the latino vote being decisive. in 2008, president obama would not have been able to turn florida, new mexico, colorado, nevada, would not have been able to turn those blue and win the election had it not been for the latino vote. in 2010, latinos basically saved democrats from losing the senate, and harry reid says this all the time.
of targeting key groups like students, women and latino voters. our political team writing one of the most powerful underkurnlt currents of this election is the democratic advantage for the democrats. every poll has found and the bottom line, demography is an advantage for president obama and a challenge for mitt romney. let me bring in the senior political editor, mark murray. mark prior to the poll last week we saw hugely with women. that's closed depending on the polls we've looked at. we continue to see a huge leak with the president with the latino voters. the issue is demographics in the latino community shows up to vote if they support the president. >> that's right. enthusiasm does matter, but in a way look at this election is demography, is destiny. the nbc/"wall street journal" pollsters did something interesting where they merged the data from this summer as well as the two big sur vas in september and measured it with the exit polls from 2008. actually, it showed some erosion for president obama from 2008 with white independents. those folks obama narrowly lost in 2008 and he's
, to the latino community. notable he will be there as well. >> very interesting. thanks very, very much, jim acosta in littleton, colorado. >>> all right. this just coming in to cnn. the results of our brand new poll among latinos all over the united states. certainly one of the country's fastest growing and increasingly important groups of voters. look at this. it shows overwhelming support for president obama. he leads mitt romney 70% to 26% among likely latino voters. let's bring in our chief national correspondent john king joining us from denver, the site of the debate tomorrow night. john, you've taken a close look at these numbers. are there any nuggets in there that may be good for the romney campaign? because 70% of latinos saying they're likely to vote for the president of the united states, that's pretty bad for romney. >> reporter: wolf, i've scrubbed the numbers, looked at the cross tops and in a word, no, there is nothing encouraging for the romney campaign in the poll of likely latino voters. one way you judge an incumbent president, president obama, you ask people what do you
have to go, but there's a poll that the latest read of latinos is 72% favor the president. is that needle going to change? >> let me tell you, that's a poll of latinos across america. there's a massive number of la latino voters in california and new york. those states are not in contention. what about the latinos in florida, virginia, north carolina, colorado -- neil: president's up in florida. >> here's the appointment, the gap is closer. neil: really? >> in fact, florida, i think mitt romney is going to win the latino vote. neil: florida itself? >> florida itself shows it's a 1-point rate, a tie, and president obama won florida last time by four points. that means there's people in florida that voted for him the last time that are not going to vote for him now. that's a trend. i think that's a good trend for us. neil: senator rubio, thank you very much, very much. >> good so see you. neil: you have throngs following you, they are my fans, but, no, that was not the case. peter barnes is out there in -- i don't know if you're in the spin room formally or the alley. where
decide the next president. all morning we put the latino vote in focus. >> investigators have made progress into the investigation into agent ivie's staff. >> a new theory behind the brutal death of a u.s. border agent. why investigators are saying he may have died at hands of one of his own. >>> 500 convicted felons could be set free in massachusetts. why? this chemist allegedly tampered with evidence for the last nine years. up. a short word that's a tall order. up your game. up the ante. and if you stumble, you get back up. up isn't easy, and we ought to know. we're in the business of up. everyday delta flies a quarter of million people while investing billions improving everything from booking to baggage claim. we're raising the bar on flying and tomorrow we will up it yet again. every picture tells a story. of course, some stories are bigger than others. okay guys, here we go. everybody say, 'cheeeeeeeee-eeeeeese'. got it. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smokin
is interested in the economy, most of the polling shows that latino, asians, who expect to be interested in something different are seeing economy as a top issue. i think as latino and asian voters and other minority voters, what we want to hear about what does this data mean to me, to the bottom line. i'd love to see that happen in the debates. the actual voter. how is the dream going to be accessible to be. >> which is what biden does really, really well. >> you know what's interesting, melissa, stepping back for a minute, part of the problem with the debates and the natural discussion, we tend to agree with what the facts are. we can't agree what the structural issues are. if we can't agree that this number is the number under the deficit or this platform is the platform for taxes, how can you have a substantive debate? >> the republicans have actively attempted to say that numbers can be manipulated. >> sure. >> we had 7, 8% job numbers. i do think if we're going to have -- we have to have agreement about what constitutes evidence. >> that's my point about why i think biden is a much
and the republic party have so alienated the fastest growing demographic group in the country the latino community. that was probably the only thing that i thought maybe could have been a gotcha thing. >> bill: now but he said it himself, the paper wasn't pushing him on the latino thing, was the paper? >> no. >> bill: he just said it himself. are there a lot of latino voters in iowa now? does that change the item graphic of the state? >> i will tell you there is probably about 44,000 and i think the population is about 182,000. >> in des moines? >> not in des moines, in iowa. >> 182,000. you have got more people than that. >> in the latino community? yeah, i'm speaking specifically in the latino community. >> bill: all right, so you have 182,000 latinos in the state. and what's the 44,000 you mentioned? >> those are registered to vote. >> bill: okay. now, the state is a dead heat. your radio station very powerful. is your radio station endorsing anybody? >> we have not endorsed anybody just yet. >> bill: do you have a feeling on who is going to take iowa? >> if it was right -- i will will tell you
alienating latino voters. florida's latino population has exploded and a diverse latino population making up nearly 23% of the state and as we look at the diversification, it doesn't include cubans, puerto ricans and mexicans. is the latino population in florida solid leah for the president or is it likely that the president can make inroads. >> the community is solidly behind the president and they're behind the president for several reasons. first and foremost because the president's plans for the economy is built from the middle out. it helps middle class families and not just the top down approach that outsourced jobs and crashed our economy before. the hispanic community understands that just like the broader community and on immigration, this is a president that's committed to immigration reform and it's taken dramatic steps to help immigrants find a place in this country while governor romney's position is still one of self-deportation. he struggles to maintain that and the community here in florida have heard this loud and clear. >> we appreciate your time. >> my pleasure, thanks, th
-income, african-american, latino families. they're just trying to make ends meet. they don't have much access to political power. our election season is the one time where they feel they can have a say in our democracy. today our enormous disparities are reinforced by our political disparities. >> that's supposed to be the one moment that's maybe moving out. i ought to be able to say every voice counts equally in the ballot box. is that changing? i was looking at the amount of outside spending. if you look at the center for responsive politics about shadow money, you just see that this is new, right? yes, there's always been money in politics, but look at the explosion of it over the course of the past couple of election cycles, in particular 2012. lesley, do ordinary people still have a voice when there's this much loud spending going on? >> i think you mentioned a point about the 915,000 political ads. what wasn't added to that is it's a 44% increase from 2008. you wake up in the morning, your twitter feed is full of political ads. the truth is, all your mailings and everything else, i do w
a long time to get them back. >> how about the latino vote? governor romney is losing it by a wide margin. >> another one. comments like the 47% hit. i know he has now defined as far as where his position would be relative to obama's policy of allowing students who are in this country, who came in as children, they'd give them a visa to finish their education, and he has said he would support that. >> uh-huh. >> because frankly, again, the position of republicans has been such that, it's build a fence and throw everybody out. and you have a whole huge population there saying, hey, we're working hard in this country. we're contributing. we love it. our problem is that we have m e made, becoming an american citizen so difficult that for many of these people, it's hard to get, to get through that process. >> so, then, the latino vote, the immigrant vote, is that lost to the gop for a generation? >> no, i don't think so. because you have to remember also, you have a lot of very conservative members of the latino. a lot of catholics. a lot of people feel very strongly about the birth control
president obama with a commanding lead among latinos. 69% of the poll giving the nod to the president. 21% to mitt romney. however pew says the 77% of latinos who say they're absolutely certain to vote is less than all other registered voters. and the issue for most among latinos,age indication, followed by jobs and the che. >>> in this week's office politics we talk to the stars of our morning crew. joe scarborough and mika brzezinski and you won't be surprised to hear joe make a case for mitt romney or mika thinks romney is a goober. but following the governor's strong first presidential debate performance you might be surprised by joe's assessment of barack obama's chances in the second one. >> i think if he holds his own, i think the economy's improving, the right track/wrong track direction is improving. the way this state by state polls show, americans think the economy is starting to improve the economy is slowly starting to get better. i think that breaks the president's way. i think if he holds his own in the next two debates, i think it's going to be very close, but he's got a b
on lower turnout from african-american and latino voters and there are eight million more registered latino voters this cycle than four years ago. so that's a silly assumption for them to be making. they are making a lot of false assumptions. you look at where the president is ahead in early voting, he's ahead of his own record. so i think the story is president obama has real momentum in the early vote period. >> and of course, on that conference call, jim maine see na said every single day now is election day. as you mentioned in that early voting in ohio and wisconsin and iowa is also very strong, e.j., is that going to be enough? is this a sign of momentum that's going to carry through for president obama? what do you think? >> first of all, i think there's a big debate out there who has the momentum. i think romney had it after the first debate and started losing it after the second. but what karen said is important. african-american and latino turnout is going to be a very big deal, which also means that voter suppression efforts on election day are going to be a very big deal. and i
the latino community. this is a new phenomenon. george bush acknowledged it. they will have a deep interest in getting that done. the political case, oh, if barack obama is reelected, absolutely not. we are all in agreement. it's the exact same dynamics. i think there's a persuasive case. as a republican, i'm wondering if you think the same thing? >> george w. bush tried to propose bipartisan immigration reform. it was sunk. >> that is just not tree to say it was both parties. labor always opposed these, did the tough thing, bit down, went to their members, members that are suspicious of this and sold them that bill. this is mccain/kennedy. in 2008, when the candidates were running, john mccain took his name off the bill. it's not true it was killed by both parties. >> let's talk about what barack obama has done. he hasn't proposed a plan. one thing that comes out of the book is president obama doesn't enjoy the policy negotiations with congress. itis not his thing. >> why wuld you enjoy that? you would have to be a masochist to enjoy that. >> it's how you pass it. bill clinton did enjoy it
to the president, will african-americans, latinos and women turn out for him like they did in 2008? for governor romney, the challenge is getting support in states that president obama won in 2008. the governor currently outperforms john mccain among independents, men and mid western voters. all groups that president obama won four years ago. let's bring in john harwood. john, so in 2008, president obama won those groups that romney is now doing well with. the latest data shows the president kept his double digit lead among women. do we see a tighter margin? the president's support is sky high among african-americans, latinos he's up by more than 60 points. and the numbers are good, but at this point, are they enough to win is what the obama campaign is wondering. >> well, the obama campaign could still lose it. mitt romney is very close to them in battleground states. but at this moment when you look at the electoral map to get to 12 270, romney is not where he needs to be. he is doing better than john mccain with some of the key groups, but he has to do a lot better. other thing worth noting i
county. i don't know who chose that audience, 90 minutes one african-american and one latino. the president did well but i had to say that for the record. >> lawrence o'donnell is in the spin room right now. >> i want to go right to the last question and the last response that the president gave where he brought up mitt romney's 47% comment made on a video that he didn't know was being recorded. was it a strategic decision of the campaign to save that 47% reference for the last minute of this debate tonight? >> well, i heard what steve schmidt said and i would love to take credit for strategic brilliance, that's the way the debate fell. i know the president wanted to engage on that. i think he was unwilling to accept governor romney's explanation that this long explication in front of a closed-door audience on the 47% was some sort of a misstatement. it clearly wasn't. it's a statement of philosophy. it's a philosophy that animates all of his policy and positions. and it does -- it is disdainful of large numbers of people who are working hard, who have worked hard. so it goes
on the right. it's good stuff. might not help romney with the latino vote. we're going to get a new nbc news "wall street journal" poll coming up in our next hour. >>> then bringing out bubba. president bill clinton will stump for the president in new hampshire at noon today. overmany discounts to thine customers! [old english accent] safe driver, multi-car, paid in full -- a most fulsome bounty indeed, lord jamie. thou cometh and we thy saveth! what are you doing? we doth offer so many discounts, we have some to spare. oh, you have any of those homeowners discounts? here we go. thank you. he took my shield, my lady. these are troubling times in the kingdom. more discounts than we knoweth what to do with. now that's progressive. this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy >>> welcome back, everybody. earlier we asked you, do you think that one of the candidates will deliver a knock
of mexican parents, he might have a better shot. >> your policies suck. being latino wouldn't win you the election but saying jokingly that you wish you were might actually lose it for you. >> the president needs to go after mitt romney but he can't look like a pit bull on stage. that's a tough order. it's a fine line to walk. the debate will not be the same as it was two weeks ago. the podiums are gone. the candidates will have to look comfortable and welcoming to a room full of undecided voters. mitt romney showed in the last debate he can make the most of his rehearsed lines to connect with regular voters. >> i have had the occasion of meeting people across the country. i was in dayton, ohio, and a woman grabbed my arm and said i've been out of work, can you help me? and a rally in denver, a woman said my husband has had four jobs in three years, part-time jobs, he's lost his most recent job and we have now lost our home. can you help us? and the answer is yes. we can help. but it's going to take a different path. >> and what about those workers in illinois. that story coming up la
, governor has a slight lead, depending on the reading, but he is scoring surprisingly well with latinos that is divergent from polls in other states where his ticket is surging but still 65, 35, what do you make of that? >> florida has many hispanic voters who may be registered to one party or the other but vote for the best candidate and have been hurt by this economy and the downturn in the economy. looking at statistics, the hispanic community is being hurt. you are seeing that in the polls reflected in florida. mitt romney is offering a solution, what is hurting the president is an outline governing the agenda for next 4 years. you look at outline could barack obama has failed to layout an agenda for the next 4 years, what is he doing different, to get right what he has gotten wrong. he does not talk about those, that has hurt him among all voters, but really hispanic voter who to not like negative campaigns. neil: tonight, rap against mitt romney she does not present a grand vision you allude. to does he have on, not say whether we would go to war with iran, because, to differentia
latinos in particular, those two parts of his base. african-american enthusiasm subpoeis up and fine and there. latinos and young voters, this is sort of the president's challenge. it's not about swing voters for him i would argue. at this point it's about trying to fire up two voting groups more than anything else, because they doubled it. he's winning latinos by a bigger margin, but because they're not as enthusiastic if they don't look like likely voters, he might not net any new votes in some places. if seniors are ticking up in enthusiasm, which is what we show, that's the difference in nevada, right? that's how a nevada goes 51-49 obama to 51-49 romney. >> mika. >> we saw also in the polls the enthusiasm gap, which i think is really troubling for the president but also tightening with women. what do you think is going on there? >> what i find very interesting is how one of the problems obama now has is his own side is so hysterical. it's like the republicans are very good at staying on message when they have a bad hole to get into it. if something goes wrong for them, the whole
. >> reporter: the two latino women there said they were leaning toward the president, the exact group of voters he hopes will help him win this state. on the other hand, some supporters may be slipping away. >> made a lot of promises four years ago. and we've had four years to watch a lot of that not happen. >> you voted for obama last time? >> yes. i'm a lot more suspicious and guarded. >> the question i have is four years really enough to follow through on these promises. can all of president obama's promises he made four years ago really be done in four years? >> what do you think? is four years enough? >> i don't think so. >> reporter: and they all wish they'd had a fact checker standing by to sort through the flurry of claims and counter claims. is romney really not seeking a $5 trillion tax cut? will people be able to keep their health insurance under the president's plan? >> i always kind of approach it from they're both lying to me. so now i have to figure out which one is lying to me less and basing my decision on that. >> reporter: so i guess the question that i have that maybe you ca
and skill that african-americans and latinos in particular have to master to be successful? >> absolutely. there's a phrase known as the black tax where you have to work twice as hard and be twice as good if you're african-american. there's a black linguist task. in this case i think it's fascinating that we have a president who can basically sum up in a nut shell what scholars refer to as white cultural ho homogeny. if you're too far away from whiteness, you get judged negatively. when harry reid said that barack obama can speak in the quote-unquote negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one, you will never hear anyone referring to a white candidate as speaking in a he white dialect, right, or can't speak in a white dialect unless he wants to have one. you never have that refusal. it's absolutely true. >> professor in 2004 bill cosby set off a firestorm when he criticized pockets of black america for failing to teach their children proper english. how has that narrative changed or evolved since obama came into office, or has it? >> ing think it's interesting, because i've received phone
that was the opportunity, and it takes us out of the stereotype as women or as gay voters or latino voters that we don't just care about one-sided issues, but the economy is at the core. so i kind of like that it shows that women are tuning in, paying attention, and we are concerned about issues that are much bigger than the stereotypical ones, but, yes, those would have helped too. >> to your point i think the president wasn't sure which mitt romney was going to show up at the debate. now he knows and knows how to prepare for him -- >> but that's no guarantee he's not going to change again for the next debate. >> that's fair. >>en owe the specific point of his performance, do you believe that mitt romney is a good improviser? one of the things we have picked up is that when he's on script, he can deliver an okay speech. but he's not dizzy gillespie. he can't improvise that well. this could be a strategy that goes down a bad path for him ultimately. it's all very well for his wife and sons to say be yourself. that could be problematic for mitt romney. >> i think that's exactly right. probably the bigg
, on september 17th, same deal again. here's mitt romney at a latino issues presidential candidates forum, saying that the guy who wrote the arizona's papers, please, law, he's never met the guy. no idea. he doesn't know why he keeps say that guy is his immigrations adviser. seriously, mitt romney has never met kris kobach? no, not really. his campaign later coming out and telling cnn, never mind what mitt romney just said, he has met the guy who wrote the papers, please, law, kris kobach does advise the campaign. then a few days after that on september 25th, they went and did it again. here's mitt romney conceding one of his most frequent attacks on president obama. this was mitt romney at a rally that day admitting that president obama has not raised taxes while he has been in office. seriously? mitt romney is dropping that argument? he doesn't think president obama has raised taxes? no, not really. his campaign later saying, never mind what mitt romney just said. that's not actually what he believes. sure, he said president obama didn't raise taxes, and president obama didn't raise taxes, but
later and latino voters where your party could perhaps have a little bit of sway if the president underperforms with the groups or perhaps your party pick off a few people within those groups of voters, you could build some traction here. so my question is not want to be gotcha but a legitimate one. what is governor romney's immigration policy if he's elected? >> i think he spelled it out in the debate. for legal immigration. he explained that the wife's father was an immigrant and important to give 'em employeers the tools to determine if the folks hiring are here legally. that's laid out last night. >> eugene, self deportation doesn't mean self deportation and supports a version of the dream act. is there a definitive policy that this candidate has discussed regarding immigration or are people like jonathan picking at pieces and not forming a total story after what his immigration policy would be? >> there was a definitive policy back in the primaries. mitt romney would have vetoed the dream act. his policy for dealing with it, 12 million illegal immigrants is self deportation,
-americans, latinos and young folks who are not included in these polls are not likely voters. ledgestered voters. least likely to vote are going to vote for them. more of them in the bank before the romney folks show up he wins. that's the difference. >> bill: we don't know what the turnout is going to be. >> i don't think so. >> bill: you are a democrat and you are rooting for him and that's why you think that we don't know. who knows? >> i know -- >> bill: can i easily and because you are an old friend of mine i'm not going to embarrass you on this program i can easily tell that you in every poll the motivating factor is much higher for romney voters than it is for obama. every single poll says that let's get on to one more quick question. why, in your opinion, kirsten has libya not caught on as a huge issue when the scandal keeps getting worse. >> because it hasn't gotten a lot of media coverage. >> bill: just the media down playing it so that's worked? >> an average american you don't have time to keep track of everything. if you aren't hearing from the media about it. >> bill: it's in the o
